I had exactly the same (but on Yosemite), and found this (https://discussions.apple.com/message/29693684#29693684) resolved it. Uncheck Use Safari Suggestions in the Search tab in Safari Preferences. Certainly not a solution to the problem, but gets around it until more concrete information comes out..

I had the same issue since this morning, I guess it could be something "malfunctioned" or badly processed data arriving from Google suggestions: Got rid of it by going to: Safari -> Preferences -> Search Here everything was ticked, I unticked all, then reticked "Include search engine suggestions" only, the problem stopped. Edit: Safari suggestions was the ...

Some of the root folders (e.g. /sbin /bin) as well as some application bundles (i.e. Apple apps) are protected by System Integrity Protection even if logged in as root or using sudo. If you want to make changes to protected items disable SIP, apply the changes and reenable it.

You can currently use Chrome, the world's most popular browser, but not for long. Google are dropping support for OS X versions before 10.9 from April of this year. A Chrome version you download now will keep working, of course, but it won't get updates. However, it's unsafe to use the Internet from OS X 10.7.5, regardless of which browser you use. It's not ...

Safari suggestions is broken today. Go to Safari > Preferences > Search and disable Include search engine selections.

I needed something similar too! So look up: CustomSearch. It's highly adaptable by using the integrated CustomSearch Entry Editor. "CustomSearch allows you to easily send the selected text to one of up to eight search engines — right from the toolbar or a contextual menu. CustomSearch includes search entries for Wikipedia, Google, Bing, and Amazon."

According to this website, the VTDecoderXPCService is called to sandbox applications that might play quicktime or other video content. http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/02/09/apple_deadline_for_sandboxing_in_mac_app_store_arrives_march_1/ You could try quitting your applications one by one and seeing which ones are calling that process. For me, it's ...

Nope, but you can install uBlock. Unfortunately, it seems like its development has stalled recently, but it still works for the most part.

You could also use this in the browswer, ?nocache=1 behing the URL. example www.constructivworks.com/?nocache=1 This should clear the cache specifically on the site you have open in that specific tab. Hope this helps!

It's an official bug, yes. It seems to be solely happening with Merriweather Sans. Maybe someone at Apple or on the east coast decided to protest the name of the font? ;) Seriously, an update is in the works, and someone here suggests a work-around. https://github.com/google/fonts/issues/184

I started having this issue tonight and immediately cleared my website data, restarted iPhone, and killed safari from the home screen with no luck. I finally turned off the search engine suggestions, Safari suggestions, and preload top hit and that seemed to fix it. I am, by no means, a tech guru so I have absolutely no explanation for why this happened ...

Narrowed it down to Safari Suggestions. I shut suggestions off and it works fine now.

This is probably a problem with Safari font rendering engine with Merriweather Sans font. It has something to do with ligature I suppose. You can check typecast.com and see that when You insert fi it automatically is changed to if as You type.

[No affiliation, I'm just a user.] There is also an open source solution to manage cookies, though it's not maintained anymore and — according the README notice — it doesn't ...

You don't have to restart your Mac. You can simply use Command-Option-Escape and Relaunch the Finder app. I have this same problem, but it only happens when I have a Finder window open to the Downloads folder at the same time I download a file in Safari. If the Downloads folder isn't open, the file downloads and all is well. This problem started with OS X El ...

This is a bug in safari. Currently the workaround is to open Safari > Preferences > Search and disable "Include Safari Suggestions". http://www.engadget.com/2016/01/27/apple-safari-suggestions-bug/

My assumption solution: Safari is continuously attempting to reload the last session. To resolve this issue go to ~/Library/Saved Application State/ Remove the com.safari... folder and place in the Trash. A second issue could be adware, which created the issue in the first place. Open Safari, which should operate properly after removing the above folder, ...

When I finally got around to the install, I used the tool that bmike recommended just in case, but it turned out to be unecessary. Safari did not automatically reopen the windows, but they were still available in the history and popped right open when I selected "Reopen all windows from last closed session" in the "History" menu.
